A Made-for-TV Christmas

christmas sceneI love Christmas! As the song says, “it’s the most wonderful time of the year” and I’m not one to argue. With brightly colored lights and decorations everywhere, familiar Christmas carols playing on the radio, and sugary treats baking in the oven, Christmas is a feast for the senses.

As a child, I grew up in a household that embraced everything about Christmas. We had many wonderful holiday traditions, but my favorites all involved watching Christmas movies together. Each year, we would watch all of the classic Christmas movies like White Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. I still love those movies and watch them every year, but recently, I have added a few new movies to my seasonal viewing: made-for-TV Christmas movies.

Come to our Party!

Come and enjoy our Community Open House! It’s this Saturday, Dec. 6 from 2-4 pm. There will be choirs singing, refreshments, and Santa will be in the children’s area. You can get your picture taken with St. Nick and do a holiday craft. And while supplies last, we will have free coffee mugs to give out! So come visit and get into the holiday spirit!

Don't Throw That Away!!

Bits of ribbon, scraps of paper, little Christmas baubles.  All those left over wrapping things that we stuffed into the bottom of our wrapping stash.  Don't throw them away this year!  Come to the Adult DIY Craft class Tuesday, December 9 from 2 pm to 4 pm and we will show you how to use them to wrap lovely Christmas gifts that will look fabulous under any tree!  Bring them along with either a package to wrap or just an empty box to "practice" with.  You will have to register here or call the library at 281-492-8592 because class size is limited.  We always have a great time, so come and have fun with us!

A Christmas Surprise!

Shhh…the elves will creep in during the Thanksgiving holiday. At least we think that’s what happens. All we know is that every year, while we’re all celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday and eating lots of food, our library is magically transformed.  When we open on Monday, Dec. 1st, there will be several Christmas trees and lots of decorations. So come by and enjoy the Christmas cheer. You may even see an elf!
